Samuel E. Feigin


Sam Feigin is a partner in and co-chair of Crowell & Moring's Corporate Group. Sam also serves as chair of the firm's Israel Practice, is very active in the firm's Private Equity, Retail and Consumer Products and Emerging Companies & Venture Capital practices, and serves as a member of the firm's Life Sciences Steering Committee. Sam represents clients around the globe, particularly in the technology, media and telecommunications (TMT), life science, aviation and consumer goods arenas. He is a trusted strategic advisor and problem solver who advises boards of directors and management teams on their most sensitive and crucial matters. Sam routinely serves as relationship manager and outside general counsel to clients, assisting them on mergers and acquisitions, private placements, leveraged buyouts, licensing transactions, life science strategic collaborations, joint ventures, franchising, risk management, and corporate governance issues. His clients include global brands, venture and private equity funds, middle market public and private companies, emerging companies, investment banks, and senior executives.

In addition to representing companies and funds on transactions and other corporate matters, Sam handles a wide variety of labor and employment matters, both within and outside the transactional context. His employment work includes executive employment and equity arrangements, implementation and refinement of employee policies, wage and hour matters, workforce and management training, employee incentive programs, employee crises and disputes, reductions in force, worker classification issues, and non-competition and trade secrets matters. Sam is renowned for his work in the executive employment realm in which he handles dozens of inbound and outbound negotiations for companies and executives each year. Sam's approach is to emphasize the primacy of achieving the client's business goals by focusing on strategic counseling, negotiation, and risk prevention. However, where disputes are not resolved amicably and quickly, he represents clients in court, before arbitrators, and in federal and state agencies with respect to the gamut of labor and employment issues.

Sam has extensive experience representing Israeli, European, and other foreign-based companies and funds doing business in the United States, as well as those doing business with them. Throughout his career, Sam has maintained a substantial focus on facilitating the flow of business involving Israel-related companies, investors, and entrepreneurs. He has represented scores of Israel-based companies and those doing business with them.

Sam has an international network that he leverages daily for clients. He lived and practiced primarily in Boston for many years before returning to his native Washington, D.C. area. He spends substantial time in both regions, as well as New York and Israel. While in law school, he was a Dean's Fellow and articles editor of The George Washington Law Review.

Sam has long been recognized for exceptional accomplishments and standing in both the corporate and employment realms by leading publications such as Chambers USA (Corporate/M&A and Private Equity) and Super Lawyers (employment). For 2017, the National Law Journal named Sam one of fewer than 20 M&A and Antitrust Trailblazers in the United States. In recent editions, Chambers noted Sam received "glowing feedback" from clients and peers who praised his creativity, problem solving, and ability to smoothly coordinate multi-disciplinary representations and quoted clients who remarked, "Sam is our go-to attorney and strategic advisor" and "has been a great asset to our organization." For 2019, Chambers reported, "Clients enthuse that he is 'available 24/7' and 'great as a lead partner.'"
